Thermaltake CaseMOD Website Hi guys and welcome to my build log. First off I'd like to thank Thermaltake for selecting me for this global invitational competition. Now lets jump in and see the wonderful sponsors who are supporting me in my Double X Project. Just a note to add that I'm still talking with unconfirmed sponsors and will add these up later. Playing host to this competition. We aimed to keep everything Thermaltake as much as possible. This included the required Thermaltake gear including Case and Cooling. We also opted for Thermaltake PSU and Riing fans. When it comes to Motherboards and Video Cards Asus is always our number one choice. The flexibility and endless support they provide make it that much easier to build customisations. Having Asus on-board is only part of the process. With NVIDIA's support we wouldn't have the foundation for the video cards being used in the build. A hardcore build needs hardcore memory. Avexir makes some of the best looking memory around. They are provided a HUGE 64GB Raiden kit for this project. As SSDs are becoming the norm. Most people are forgetting the good old Hard Drive. We haven't forgot which is why we use hard drives in most of our builds. Including this one. WD also provide the largest range of drives for just about every purpose. ModGuru are relatively new to the scene and we're happy to have them on-board. ModGuru are helping to supply LED strips and connectors for the build. //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// 100% of this build is performed by me. Painting, cutting, drilling, all done in my house, either in the garage, backyard or shed. I'll be putting up a final write-up once the build is done with pictures of the tools used for my build. I feel the purpose of this project and competition is tell help close the gap between modders and beginners. I'll be showing you that you don't need thousands of dollars worth of high end equipment to do modding. //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// Build Specs/Hardware - More info - click here CPU/s - 2x Intel Xeon e5-2660 V3 (or similar) Motherboard - ASUS Z10PE-D8 WS Memory - TBA GPUs - 3x ASUS NVIDIA STRIX GTX 980's SSDs - TBA Storage (HDDs) 3x Western Digital 4TB Blacks Power Supply - Thermaltake Toughpower Grand 1200W Platinum Fans - Thermaltake Riing Fans x22 Water Cooling Pacific VGA Bridge Triple x1 Pacific V-GTX Block - STRIX - 980 x3 Thermaltake Pacific W2 CPU Water Block x2 Thermaltake Pacific PT40-D5 Silent Kit Reservoir/Pump Combo x2 Thermaltake Pacific P1 Black D5 Pump w/ Silent Kit x2 Thermaltake Hard tubes 500mm x10 Fittings Thermaltake Pacific G1/4 Stop Plug w/ O-Ring – Chrome x10 Thermaltake Pacific G1/4 45 & 90 Degree Adapter – Chrome x10 Thermaltake Pacific G1/4 90 Degree Adapter - Chrome x10 Thermaltake Pacific G1/4 Y Adapter - Chrome x10 Thermaltake Pacific G1/4 Female to Male 20mm Extender – Chrome x6 Thermaltake Pacific G1/4 Female to Male 30mm Extender – Chrome x4 Thermaltake Pacific G1/4 Hard Tube 16mm x30 Radiators Thermaltake Pacific RL480 x4 I've created a dedicated website for this competition.
